Abuja - Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has been summoned to appear before the Disciplinary Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 following comments made by the goalkeeper before Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Chad in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Kaduna.
The 32-year old has complained about the suitability of Kaduna as match venue for the game, and questioned the state of security in the Northern city ahead of their game against Chad.
And as a result, he has been invited to explain his ‘unguarded statement’ against the NFF’s choice of Kaduna for Nigeria’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Chad on Saturday, June 13.

In a letter sent to the Lille of France goalkeeper, the Disciplinary Committee wrote:
“You will recall that you were queried by the Nigeria Football Federation for your uncomplimentary remarks with regards to safety and security in Kaduna State, host of the Nations Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Chad Republic.
“You received the query letter on June 13th, 2015 and refused to reply to the query up till now, which is well over the 48 hours deadline given to you to reply to the query. Consequently, the NFF has referred the matter to the Disciplinary Committee for adjudication.
“You are by this, invited to appear before the Disciplinary Committee of Nigeria Football Federation sitting on Tuesday, 23rd June, 2015 at the Federation’s Secretariat in Abuja. The committee sitting will commence at 11am prompt.”
And in a similar vein, midfielder Ogenyi Onazi, who earned a straight red card for an act of retaliation during the said match, has been issued a letter of reprimand, ordered to produce a written apology and fined the sum of $5,000.
